7:07 am
been any significant injuries, and when you see the amount of damage, it is hard to believe, but i believe that everybody heeded the warnings. the warning sirens were effective. and people were taking care of their neighbors and making sure that they were seeking cover, and it happened around, you know, 11:30 p.m., so most people were already in bed or just getting to bed, so it was a time when everybody was aware of what was going on. >> has the storm affected your family personally? >> personally, yes, my little brother lost his business. that was kind of devastating for the family. we are entrepreneurs and business people, and so to lose that was, is very hard on him, but like him and many others that have lost their business, and their buildings, you know, buildings can be replaced, the people can't. he is okay. everybody so far is okay. >> we keep hearing that you guys aren't out of the woods yet. that the severe weather threat is still in place. so what is your message to your
7:08 am
constituents right now? >> for constituents, they need to take care of themselves, we don't want them out here, just to look and see the damage, you know, we need to take care of our neighbors and focus on each other. right now, we already know that we're under a flood advisory. we declared a state of emergency here yesterday. because of significant flooding at the missouri river. we have evacuated people from a portion of the city because of that. so we're already bracing for flooding. that's what we've been focusing on. this was completely unexpected. now our focus is going to be on just picking up the pieces, and getting this back together and getting jefferson city back together. >> mayor carry tergin, i know you have a lot of work to do. we thank you for taking the time to speak to us. good luck. >> thank you. we will be praying. thank you. >> so much devastation there. devastating flooding has swept away homes in parts of oklahoma. flood alerts are up across half the state this morning.
7:09 am
maria villareal is in oklahoma where a whole town was forced to evacuate. >> people living in weber falls were told to get out immediately last night, when two barges broke free and started floating down the arkansas river and no one on board, they were headed for the dam that you see right below me. the fear is that these loose barges could breach the dam holding the flooded river back from a town of about 600 people. officials lost site of them briefly overnight but found them stuck on a rock several miles from the dam. they're working right now to secure them, and warn if they get loose again, a breach would cause catastrophic flash flooding. and the arkansas river is already approaching an historic high. take a look at this. speaking of historic, this world war ii submarine was sitting on dry land just four days ago. 200 miles west, rising flood waters left some homes clinging to the edge of the cimarron river in oklahoma, while other homes washed away completely.
7:10 am
in missouri, torrential rain could top levees along the missouri river, threatening to submerge home, highways and farmland. in the rest of the region, 145 flood gauges have reported flooding. and this means that it is critical for the people living down the river from here. right now, people are just hoping that the rain will subside for a few days. giving everyone at least some time to finally recover from this crazy weather over the last few days. >> sure hope mother nature is listening. they need a break there. thank you, mireya. cbs news has confirmed that a fifth migrant child is known to have died after crossing into the u.s. the health and human services department said yesterday that the girl died months ago. omar villafranca has more from mcallen texas. omar, good morning to you. >> reporter: many migrant children are brought to this processing center. just to be little clear, the little girl who died in september did not die here. but the head of the congressional hispanic caucus is
7:11 am
accusing the trump administration of trying to cover up her death. the department of health and human services tells cbs news that in march 2018, a 10-year-old girl entered the care of the office of refugee resettlement in san antonio. they say she had a history of congenital heart defects and following a surgical procedure became comatose. then, in september, at a hospital near family in nebraska, she died due to fever and respiratory distress. the revelation comes just days after carlos hernandez died while in border patrol custody. the 16-year-old from guatemala was diagnosed with the flu at the main border patrol processing facility in mcallen. intake of migrants at that facility was temporarily suspended tuesday, after 32 people were diagnosed with the flu. >> we continue to face tragedies at the border. particularly with regard to the safety of children. >> reporter: on capitol hill wednesday, acting secretary of homeland security kevin mcaleenan was confronted by
7:12 am
illinois democrat lauren underwood about the situation at the border. >> at this point with five kids that have died, 5,000 separated from their families, i feel like, and the evidence is really clear that this is intentional. it is intentional. it is a policy choice being made on purpose by this administration. and it is cruel and inhumane. >> that's an appalling accusation. and our men and women fight hard to protect people in our custody every single day. >> this will not be the last death. there are going to be more. >> katherine hampton works for the advocacy group physicians for human rights and says these deaths are an inevitable consequence of a system that detains thousands of immigrant children. >> the entire medical community is terrified this will happen and i'm terrified we will be so desensitized, that these deaths won't mean anything any more. >> to combat the flu, the building was sanitized and did
7:13 am
medical assessments and care as needed. after that, they were able to resume normal operations yesterday afternoon. >> omar, more great reporting from you and your team down there. i guess the big question, why are we only hearing now about that chi's dth if it happened all the way back in september. >> reporter: it is interesting because government agencies like hhs or orr do not have to report a migrant child death's publicly. they have to report it internally and to child welfare groups but that may be one of the reasons why it took so long for us to find out about it. >> i certainly hope it is the last one. omar, thank you very much. president trump now says congressional democrats had better stop investigating his presidency. he abruptly cut off a white house meeting with house speaker nancy pelosi and senate democratic leader chuck schumer yesterday. the president said he was upset that pelosi accused him of a coverup. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, you know, by the president's own admission, it was that term,
7:14 am
coverup, that set him off, and led to his ultimatum. either democrats drop their investigations of him, or he won't work with them. even on issues he cares about. >> get these phony investigations over with. >> reporter: the president viewed his walkout as a power play. speaker pelosi called it a temper tantrum. >> i pray for the president of the united states. and i pray for the united states of america. >> to watch what happens in the white house would make your jaw drop. >> reporter: their standoff put a stake in what was one of their few areas of common ground. >> i told senator schumer, speaker pelosi, i want to do infrastructure. you can't do it under these circumstances. >> reporter: white house sources tell cbs news that president trump, an avid cable news watcher, exploded after he saw pelosi say this, just before their meeting. >> we believe that the president of the united states is engaged in a coverup. >> reporter: president trump walked into the meeting with a
7:15 am
dozen democratic leaders and walked out again three minutes later. >> i don't do coverups. >> reporter: slamming their investigations at a hastily-called rose garden press conference. >> when i went to wisconsin and michigan, and pennsylvania, i don't say oh, let's call russia, maybe they can, it's a hoax. >> reporter: both pelosi and mr. trump see benefits to their tough talk. pelosi gets points with increasingly restless liberal members. >> i think he should be impeached. >> he can't be chairman if he is in prison. don't tell me there is not enough to debate here. >> reporter: and president trump says punching back is a good re-election strategy. >> the "i" word. you can imagine? >> reporter: president trump is shooting back at pelosi's claim that he had a temper tantrum, on twitter he said he was quote personally very polite and calm and democrats say the real reason he walked out is because he knows the issue they were discussing, infrastructure is, a tough one for him, and that he can't sell that $2 trillion
7:16 am
package they say to his own party. >> two very different impressions of that meeting, nancy, thank you very much. celebrity chef mario batali faces a criminal charge for an alleged groping incident two years ago. batali is scheduled to be arraigned in boston tomorrow on a single count of indecent assault and battery. "ctm" investigative correspondent anna werner is here with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this appears to be the first criminal charge to come from a series of sexual misconduct allegations against mario batali. according to a civil complaint filed last summer, the 58-year-old chef allegedly assaulted a woman in a boston restaurant in 2017 and the woman accused batali of forcibly kissing and groping her while taking a selfie. a lawyer for batali says he denies the investigations, and key face up to two and a half years in jail if convicted and would have to register as a sex offender. in march, batali sold his stake in all of his restaurants, the
7:17 am
first misconduct accusation surfaced in 2017. at the time, batali apologized and said he was taking full responsibility for his behavior. following a "60 minutes" report, the nypd confirmed it was investigating allegations that batali drugged and sexually assaulted a woman. batali denied assaulting her and new york police closed their investigations in january without filing any charges. the largest number of people ever is expected to hit the road for memorial day weekend. it is here. aaa estimates nearly 43 million americans will travel, 88% of them by car. "ctm" national correspondent teresa duncan is in jersey city, new jersey, and here is a question, what should drivers watch out for this holiday weekend? >> reporter: well, right now, i would say it would be the rain. and of course, that typical holiday weekend congestion is nothing new but the 37 million drivers that are expected to hit the road this weekend can see, an increase at the pump.
7:18 am
on average, mation nationwide the gas prices have jumped nearly to $3 a gallon, prices across the country have increased by an average of 47 cents. in the last three months, those of you taking road trips will see relief in car rentals and hotel costs. car rentals have declined by 7% compared to last year and mid range hotel prices have dipped about 2 to 3%. aaa highly recommends getting those maintenance checks, before hitting the road. while it sounds like common sense, there's a good reason for the reminder. more than 350,000 people are expected to experience some type of car trouble. that includes flat tires, dead batteries, and being locked out of your vehicle, which really means you just need to slow down. but all in all, the big congestion will start this evening in a lot of the big cities. you can expect delays of up to three hours longer than your normal commute.
7:19 am
